Aggh, sorry, things have been CRAZY this week, away for work and then busy busy busy.
I hope someone is still out there!
I promise this week I will be around a bit more.
So things that have been on my mind lately? Picking the perfect vacation week.
Most of the people I work with have a serious vacation week picking strategy. There is the collegue who always goes away in the middle of June, because he believes the weather is always the best (not so much last year, sad to say). Then there are the few collegues who battle endlessly to get the perfect chunk of weeks in July, and the ones who swear by August.
All of them are convinced that they have the solution to finding the perfect three weeks of the best Swedish weather known to man.
My personal strategy? I prefer to take my vacation during the cold and rainy months – work a bit in the summer, when everything is calmer and quieter, and hit the beach after work. I'll take a week here or there if there is space, but I don't really care to duke it out with my colleagues of their prefered vacation strategy.
I do think, for the most part, that Swedish summers are beautiful. So I don't understand why everyone seems to leave during the summer. The beach community we tend to hang out at, the locals usually run away for the summer, and a young party crowd takes over. I don't get why you would want beachfront property and then leave it during the peak season. But hey, I cannot afford beach front property, so what do I know?
Are there any vacation weeks you swear by? I'm still just grateful to get such amazing long vacations (5 weeks!), I'll take it whenever I can get it!
